TOYBOX Opens in Paphos, just in time for Christmas – Cyprus in Style


Owner at ToyBox, Paphos

December’s Featured New Business, is awarded to the very new toy shop in Paphos, called ToyBox. It is the brainchild of Iryna Pourdjs, who lives in Paphos, with her husband and two children. Following a high-level career in retail, working as a regional manager for the clothes shop Mango, she decided to open ToyBox, after she struggled to find quality toys for her own children. As Iryna says, “My children are invited to so many parties on a regular basis and it was impossible to find nice presents in Paphos. Some years, we attend 20 plus parties and it is nice to take a unique and original gift for the birthday child”.

ToyBox opened recently, and is positioned in a prominent position on the Pafiako Stadium roundabout. With plenty of parking, this is the perfect place to buy gifts for children and grandchildren this Christmas. It is the largest toy shop in Paphos, and, quite possibly, in the whole of Cyprus. For those parents and grandparents in Limassol and Nicosia, it is very worthwhile to make the journey to ToyBox, which is 2 minutes from the end of the highway as you enter Paphos.

ToyBox is open 7 days a week.

Quality toys are of the utmost importance to us all. Most of the toys are imported exclusively by the company, and some of the ranges are also available at Hamleys and Harrods in London. All the toys are displayed in a specially designed magical store, so that the children feel that they are walking through a wonderland. Whilst it is a shop, it is also meant to be an experience for families and would make a great family day out.

Santa’s North Pole Letterbox

The store has opened just in time for Christmas 2019 and has many events planned for the run-up to the big day. They already have a Santa’s North Pole letterbox, where children can post their letters to Father Christmas. In the run up to the 25th, they will also have Father Christmas instore, where children can meet him and take home a souvenir photograph.

Paphos is very lucky to have this magical toy shop. It creates the perfect experience for all of us to enjoy buying special gifts for our little ones. 

Whenever you buy a toy as a gift at ToyBox, they will present it to you in a free luxury gift bag. If you are unable to select the perfect present, ToyBox sell gift vouchers.
